Pastor James MacDonald, and Elders Paul Inserra, Steve Houston, Randy Williams, Jamie Harrison of Harvest Bible Chapel issue statements on behalf of all of the church elders and publicly excommunicate two former elders in a very brutal manner.
'We believe that the Bible that the authority of the church is vested in the elders. And that when the elders speak collectively in agreement, they speak for God to our church.'
'We warn the people of Harvest Bible Chapel to separate themselves from these false messengers. Don’t stand in the middle, don’t seek to mediate. Please avoid these former Harvest elders at all cost, lest you incur great detriment to your own soul.'
'publicizing viewpoints rejected by the elder majority for any reason is Satanic to the core'
This was in respond to Elders deciding that the church wasn't transparent, and were used by the pastor as puppets.
